OneDrive

OneDrive is well suited for quick storage and retrieval of important work documents. It allows users to share links to certain files which works well for collaboration. In terms of storage you can easily monitor how many GB you are using and even up storage in 1TB increments. OneDrive works so much like a file directory on a work PC so it is easy to learn and navigate around. It works well on both a PC and a Cell Phone.

OpenText ECM

Your organisation has to support the type of document and records management needed for this to work. In an organisation that only needs to store documents and maybe share with many different parties, this might not be the best-suited software. In a large organisation with stringent document and records management policies, this suite is well suited. It makes management of documents across business units easy to manage and control.

Pros

OneDrive

  • OneDrive does a great job of keeping file version history. I have had to use this feature many times and it is very simple to use. This one feature has saved my butt many times.
  • OneDrive synchronizes across devices very quickly. There have been many instances when I have added files online and, within seconds, saw the file show up on my local computer. This happens the other direction also. I am very impressed and satisfied with the speed of syncing in all directions.
  • The OneDrive app on my phone has been particularly helpful since it automatically syncs my photos (usually within seconds) and allows me access to all my files.

OpenText ECM

  • Secure storage of billions of documents using precise ACLs to control access across multiple tenants, groups, users, etc. No other system I know of can do this as well for as large of systems. Security can be refined from one person to the entire enterprise OTB.
  • Integration with other EMC/OT solutions. Assuming this is still true post-OT acquisition, Documentum has over a 100 add-ons that integrate with the core solution to expand the solution to include scanning, document processing, forms, email, etc.
  • Searching. xPlore is one of the best FTI tools on the market and it is integrated well with the Documentum solution. Other systems use excellent search tools, Elastic/Lucene/ being good examples of that, but their integration is questionable. Older systems, like WCC, are still using antique search tools OTB and require integration with the newer search tools.

Cons

OneDrive

  • OneDrive's visual feedback in Finder as to whether a file is syncing or already synced isn't always up-to-date with the actual status of these files.
  • OneDrive (on Mac) will occasionally fail to sync for errors that aren't accurate, requiring a restart.
  • OneDrive (on Mac) will occasionally fail for file name issues, where filenames allowed on Mac are not allowed on SharePoint, without providing an easy mechanism for fixing them.
  • The real-time collaborative editing user experience is not as good as Google Drive.
David McCann | TrustRadius Reviewer

OpenText ECM

  • WDK framework has been the biggest drawbacks from the application speed point of view, as well as client complexity and not so natural look and feel. Yes, with the latest releases much of these features are improved.
  • EMC is very expensive to buy, own and support, where some products require many dependent Docuemntum products to be installed to work at its best.

Stability is a key factor as well as its flexibility. Also, any organization that deploys Documentum will have made a significant investment in terms of time and money, so not renewing its commitment can come with a significant cost. That said, the decision to deploy Documentum initially should come only after extensive evaluation, knowing that once deployed it will likely remain the platform of choice.

I have given it this rating because it accomplishes the basic task that we use it for, storing and protecting our sensitive data. That being said, I hesitate to give it a completely positive rating, because I feel that the software performs at a bare minimum level, skimping out on some of the bells and whistles that would be nice.

It has a good performance, the pages load normally, access to the files, management, reports, everything is working well. With regard to integration with other systems, we have not done so yet.

Support seems to be limited, in my experience, to the general help articles offered online. Luckily we haven't experienced anything that has required more research than looking through those articles, and I can't imagine a scenario where you would need more support than that. Still, it would be nice to have a knowledgable person available to help you when an issue arises.

OpenText has an outstanding support and knowledge base. All problems which couldn't be solved by us (high complexity cases) were promptly resolved and the resolution also shared with us.

Alternatives Considered

OneDrive

I mentioned in another area that OneDrive is bundled into our Office 365 accounts - so let me start there. Dropbox will cost you $10 and more per month. Our entire Office 365 account costs $12.50/month for each user - and we get full Office with that. Enough said there. As far as features go - I've found that most of these cloud storage providers all afford similar feature sets as far as sync clients; apps and addons; storage space; etc. - so choosing one or the other really goes to the needs of the company and of course - what's in place already. If your company uses Google apps - Dropbox might make more sense because of tighter integrations. However - if you already use Office 365 in some iteration, OneDrive is already baked in.

OpenText is stronger in the management of high volume and secure information. However, SharePoint, while less functional from a document management perspective, provides a much stronger user interface which eases user adoption and the presentation of content. SharePoint also has a significantly larger ecosystem of developers and partners that makes solutions more available.

Return on Investment

OneDrive

  • One Drive has made it possible to have mobile offices, while keeping files synced.
  • One Drive has saved the need for external document backups as the could is used.
  • One Drive has made it possible to move forward with presentations even if a flash drive was left behind.
Heath Achatz | TrustRadius Reviewer

OpenText ECM

  • Allowed us to move from paper document processing and storage
  • Efficiency and cost savings have yet to be realized
  • Moved from field handling to centralized AP collection
  • The cost to implement and the purchase was extremely high and ROI benefits will take a long time to realize
